Men's Health Breakfast & Wellness Fair
119 12 Ave SW, Calgary, AB T2R 0G8, Canada
Women For Men's Health and the Prostate Cancer Centre will host a breakfast fundraiser at the Hotel Arts in Calgary on Thursday, Sept 29 (07:00-09:30 AM).
The goal of the event is to both raise funds and raise awareness of the need for men to become more involved in protecting and improving their physical and mental health.
The Covid-19 pandemic has heightened the real inequities that exist in gender health - for every ten women that the Pandemic has killed, 13 men have died. In 2022 Canadian men live on average, 4.5-5 years shorter than Canadian women. Of the top thirteen causes of death in Canada - including all cancers, cardiovascular disease, accidental and non-accidental trauma, to name a few - men lead women in 12 of the 13 causes. The WFMH group along with the Prostate Cancer Center are striving to raise awareness of strategies to reduce these grim statistics.
Our featured speakers, Marco Carducci - goalkeeper for the Canadian Premier League Cavalry FC and Canada's National Soccer Team and Blair Ector - a criminal defense lawyer from Calgary will share their stories of overcoming health challenges and thriving in our changing world.
More speakers will be announced soon!
The event will also offer attendees access to an informative and interactive Wellness Fair. Experts in health, finance, and physical wellness will be present to provide information and resources for men to manage and improve their lives.
